identify an ARM board

I am currently playing with some various ARM boards. And I ask myself: is there a way to identify a board in userland? For example, on nanopi neo, the kernel seems to know what board it is: Eg. the presence of led device (/dev/led/nanopi*).
sysctl -a return nothing signifiant except processor type/familly

You can try this command: ofwdump -P model -S /
It reports the following on my boards:
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
TI AM335x BeagleBone Black
SolidRun Cubox-i Dual/Quad
